1:40am
ll ask the chi to briefly describe the neighborhood and the weather and the streets so everyone is clear on that. >> we're back. you just saw the watertown police describing what has happened tonight there after massive shootouts. one suspect believed to be dead and another one on the loose. you see it is the one with the white cap believed to be on the loose, brian. so far, at least, brian ross, no identification of these suspects. >> we don't have a name yet, that's right, george. we do have, according to the massachusetts state police a clear connection between the two people being sought for the marathon bombing and the two individuals involved here. this continues to be a highly tense situation that they've got members of the s.w.a.t team overhere with automatic weapons and reporters trying to cover the story. one of our producers who wandered off to see what was happening down the road was
1:41am
forced to the ground at the point of a weapon because she had a black backpack on and told there are bombs everywhere, you have to get out of this area. we are also advised to keep our cell phones off at one point for plghig >> as you say, highly tense situation. i want to go now to pierre thomas, our chief justice correspondent in washington. pierre, i know the fbi special agent in charge is on the scene right now in watertown, but the top effort by the fbi in washington trying to identify these suspects. >> absolutely, george. the state officials and the boston officials who are giving the confirmation about suspect number one. the gentleman, the suspect with the black hat who has been killed and suspect number two, the gentleman with the white cap who they are seeking. i did speak with a senior fbi official who is expecting that they will give some additional information and updates later today. he said, it is clear that what happened yesterday by releasing
1:42am
those photographs and the video that they opened a bees hive, that these guys were run to ground by all the pressure being put on them. as brian just stated, the priority is getting suspect number two with the white hat. this official said this situation is extremely, extremely dangerous and they expect this person not to go doubt without a fight. >> as the commissioner said, this is a terrorist. we believe this is a man who came here to kill people. brien a brian and pierre, thank you very much. live on "good morning america" with the latest developments. see you then. >> announcer: this has been a special report from abc news. what is the "los angeles times"? noen. what is "the new york times"? a prefixer upper for $200.

1:45am
bringing us up to date at the scene that you are.
1:46am
we now want to move on to correspondent richard ross who was the as that press conference occurred. brian, what can you tell us? >> brian are you here? >> i'm here. just getting set up with the state police. they are expected to give us an update. as you said, the highest priority right now, find suspect number two. he is the one identified by the fbi yesterday as one of the bombers. and now he was seen as part of the stickup at the 7-eleven in cambridge and there are photographs there from the surveillance cameras and they are certain, according to the state police, that he is the same person who the fbi was looking for. it was quite a scene here as they race down the streets of this quiet town late at night on thursday and through the morning here. with one police officer dead and
1:47am
another one in very critical condition from the shootouts with these two individuals. it's clear that they were exactly as the fbi put it, armed and very, very dangerous. and that danger continues at th point and, linsey have been describinghe conditions. if you are driving, don't stop to pick up anybody. >> you told us earlier about an anecdote of an a a bc police producer who was carrying a backpack and they had or on the ground at one point. can you describe that story, again? >> i can do better than that. meg, describe what happened when you were there and the police came to you. go ahead. >> i was told it was a very unsafe area and there was a suspect who was dropping bombs out of backpacks and i needed to vacate immediately. >> how did they regard you?
1:48am
>> they thought i could potentially be a suspect? >> what did they tell you? >> the backpack i was wearing immediately caught their eye and i couldn't be in the area at all. >> weapons were drawn? >> weapons were drawn. >> were you pushed to the ground? >> yeah. >> how was that? >> terrifying. my heart stopped. >> keep up the good work. that's exactly what happened. we now have members of the squad team automatic weapons over here who are apparently guarding us in case this person who's at large decides that he would act here. so, continue to be a very tense situation. >> if you could just stay with osfor a mome us for aoment longer. you said upwards of 1,000 law e area. every agency descended upon this small town of watertown, massachusetts. can you describe the scene. you said at one point it was kind of frantic and slowed down a little bit.
1:49am
how about now? >> apparently, we're told they just found another device down the road here. and they're coming back and forth with reinforcements coming in. whatever's happening is happening somewhere down the road there and, you know, we are blocks from getting down there because it is so dangerous and sort of unsecure at this point. but the huge law enforcement presence continues here and, obviously, it's not going to let up until they find this person who is at large. my hunch is that when the sun comes up, that helps law enforcement to find this person. right now, he's under the cover of darkness with weapons and it's a tense situation. and i think they're afraid he may break into someone's home. this is a man who if the charges are correct, has not hesitated to put a bomb near the feet of young children. so, he is considered very dangerous. >> brian, obviously, not only looking for the second spect,
1:50am
but also looking for potally any backpack bomb devices he may or may not have stashed in his get away, which hopefully won't last too much longer. but we heard a question to the local police earlier in a press conference, will there be any controlled explosions? at the time the answer was no, but, clearly, we don't know what is happening behind you. if they find any kind of backpack, we could imagine that could be an option? >> absolutely. this is no time to wear a black backpack in this neighborhood. >> you got that right. >> stay with us just a little bit longer. could you talk about the tone of this press conference? they seemed like they had a lot to get to, a lot of information that they wanted to disseminate to the public. once it was, the cameras were no longer on them, what was the tone? did they say anything else, did they share anything else with you, the reporters that you could tell us? >> it was very, very
1:51am
business-like and the point was not so much to give us information, but to speak almost directly to the people of watertown about the risk that they now face with a person who is armed and dangerous on the loose. and the instructions to the people of watertown were very clear doing what they call a reverse 911, where they're calling out to homes to make sure that people if they are there, are there any problems? are you okay? has this person broken in somewhere or is he hiding in a basement? the tone from the state police them, another one still one of ere and, you knat rge, being chased probably puts him in one of most dangerous situation you can be because if he's cornered. >> we just talked to linsey davis who mentioned that some people are just curious and coming out of their homes. not a good ide have peopl
1:52am
about or are you surrounded just there by journalists? >> a number of residents. we talked to one earlier who just can't help the curiosity to see what's going on. the one description we had from one resident we heard this explosion, it lit up the sky over watertown, which would suggest a very, very large explosion. one resident has been tweeting what happened in his area where he said there were bulletholes in his car and saw what he described as a pressure cooker outside near his home and that was the device that was used, of course, in the two bombs that were set at the marathon. >> certainly, an incredible situation there. i do want to share with every e everyone. m.i.t. at this moment is safe. the campus is safe to return. and they did issue a statement, which essentially said that they are heartbroken by the news that an m.i.t. police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty. this is, the police officer that
1:53am
the robbery at 7-eleven becaus the timeline of events is robbery at 7-eleven, m.i.t. shooting, ofcer kill carjacking. sowhere between the robbery and carjacking this m.i.t. officer geis shot to death, unfortunately. at this point, m.i.t. says it's worked with multiple police departments in order to ensure the safety of m.i.t. campus and they swept the campus and searched for the shooter there before they moved on to watertown and now has returned to safety. >> so many people waking up. if you're just waking up and turning on. we'll take our time and recap this as we have a breaking situation where they're searching for a suspect. a manhunt right now. one suspect is dead and these two suspects, according to local police, are consistent with the photographs of the suspects from the boston marathon bombings. as you mentioned earlier, diana, this start would ed with an inct a local convenience store and then went to the m.i.t. campus.
1:54am
we have new video we have for you. i believe it is pictures of the shootout. let's listen in. >> you can hear the gunshots being fired. that is courtesy of wcvb. we don't know if this is close to the m.i.t. campus or later o e in watertown. but explosive s thrn from a car, u0 gunshots fir a wild, wild situation. once again, with a convenience store robbery, the shooting, the fatal shooting of a. campus police officer and a wild police chase and carjacking that went to watertown and ended with one suspect dead and her spect fleeing from
1:55am
police and right now that is who they are searching for. >> an incredibly fluid situation that we continue to monitor and bring you the latest information. bring you the latest information. we'll be right back after this. and we ged dollars in points from sears to use on jim's mower... hold the phone! ...and points from the grill helped pay for my dress... now you're just pulling my leg. get this, sometimes points just show up in our account. get out of town! with points from shop your way, there are more ways to save than ever at sears. oh and this bracelet... i used points to get it for free. yeah, right. and i'm married to lorenzo lamas. hola. this is how to save. this is sears. for the things you can't wash, freshen them with febreze. ♪ because febreze doesn't just cover up odors...

1:58am
extremely dangerous and one of them is still armed and dangerous in that mercedes. just goes to show how dangerous. several devices were thrown from this carjacked car and one of the suspects in that car were struck by a bullet. taken into custody, but we now know that he has deceased. >> now, the big thing is to search for the second suspect who is considered very dangerous. the quote from local police was, this is a terrorist. he came here to kill people. another quote from local police that the suspect is consistent with the suspect number two from the boston marathon bombings. he is in the, he is believed to be possibly in that community right now. residents are told not to answer their doors unless it is police and police do expect to go door-to-door and motorists in the area told not to p anybody up. let's listen to some sound from a local police officer. >> we are concerned about securing that area and making sure this individual is taken into custody. we believe this to be a
1:59am
terrorist. we believe this to be a man who comes here to kill people. we need to get him in custody. >> he is described as a white male with curly hair. if you see the fbi pictures released, he is, in fact, described as suspect number two. the one wearing the white ball cap. >> this is not only a fluid situation, but a dangerous situation. police are asking everybody in the area to stay inside of their homes. only answer the door if the person on the other side has identified themselves as a police officer. they are saying that their plan is to go into keeping everybody safe. that's the mode that they're in. they are going to go door-to-door and block to block. they will talk to everybody in the home and make sure they get this guy before any more time goes on. as you can tell from what we have been saying, incredibly dangerous person. explosives, gunfire, they want to make sure they nab him. >> stay with us, everybody. this will conclude this half
2:00am
good morning, i'm diana perez. thank you for joining us this morning. >> i'm john mueller. our breaking news this morning. a wild scene out of the boston area, specifically watertown and the suspect for a second suspect continues and this, according to local police connected to the boston marathon bombings. >> we are getting confirmation of that. we want to go to brian ross who is on the scene throughout the morning collecting as much information as possible. brian, thank you for joining us, once again. what is the very latest? >> the very latest is that a terrorist is at large. that's how the police here view it. the man identified yesterday by the fbi as suspect number two in the marathon bombings. he and his partner, suspect number one began the evening, apparently, with an attempted stick up at a 7-eleven store in
2:01am
cambridge and went on to m.i.t. where they got in a gun battle with m.i.t. police and that led to a wild chase by car from cambridge into neighboring watertown. more gunfire here. at that point, the suspect number one, identified by the fbi, was shot. but suspect number two fled. so, at this point, suspect number two is at large. they believe he is dangerous and he is on the residents of this town have been told to stay inside. ot athor anybody other than someone who can be identified as the police officer.the pelong the route of the chase describe gunfire, bombs going off into the night, grenades being thrown. so, the suspect number two remains at large and a huge police presence here with people looking for him. he's hiding under the cover of darkness. the sun comes up in about an hour and that will probably aid the search.
2:02am
at the moment, remains a very tense situation with a man who, they believe, will murder at will at large. >> clearly, brian, not only worried about catching this second suspect, but also worried about policy about potential explosives he may or may not have planted along the way. >> that is absolutely correct. one of our producers was told, be careful, there are explosives everywhere. we were told at one point not to use cell phones for fear they might trigger than explosion. so, these are people who they suspect have skills and building bombs and had lots of other bombs, apparently. one of the questions that i think is raised is based on the identification of the two suspects, men one and two from the boston marathon bombings. ny surprised they were in is area, they have not taken off at all. the additional information we have is they had a car loaded with explosives, which suggests, perhaps, they had not finished
2:03am
whatever their task was. >> brian, two individuals who wanted to cause a lot of harm. just going back to what police were telling us about what they did just on this spree alone. a robbery, a carjacking, they shot and killed an m.i.t. police officer. there is another transit police officer who was struck and is now in critical condition at the hospital. and the concern is for the residents, also. they want to make sure everyone is safe inside and everybody is vigilant because until the sun comes up, there is no telling where this man is. right now, is there any developments on, as far as how police are going to keep the area safe? is it still just the door-to-door? have you heard any updates on that? >> it is door-to-door. phone calls are being made at random. reverse 911 calls and they have
2:04am
an area where they think he might be and they tried to square that off, but with darkness, that is an ally for someone trying to hide for a fugitive. but that is the concern. it's probably about a mie froeg right now. where this is taking place. but it's a very tense situation there. they have no doubt tha rson ire again. >> we saw the cars behind you, brian, speeding behind you. so, certainly fluid. take care out there and we'll check in in a little bit. abc's brian ross, thank you. we now want to move to abc's pierre thomas who is in washington. pierre, you have been in contact with your fbi sources throughout evening and the morning. what can you tell us? >> the fbi says now they're trying to assist the state and bost boston pd in searching for suspect number two. the suspect with the white cap on that we have been seeing in the videos and foephotographs. they believe this person is a
2:05am
terrorist who is willing to kill, as brian just noted, at will. likely taking hostages and likely bomb his way out of any situation. law enforcement officials say priority number two is to try to get control of whatever explosive devices that have been left behind. law enforcement officials are telling me that this could not be a more urgent, dangerous situation than you have unfolding in that area right now. >> one suspect was actually was taken into custody and we are told that that first suspect has deceased. but, clearly, no time to let down because this is a very dangerous situation, pierre, thanu. >> pierre, i do have one more question for you. if you, if you have a moment there. where do we go for now? you mentioned earlier that the release of those two pictures from the fbi had created a beehive situation. what exactly does that mean for this case? >> well, what the fb is that when they made the
2:06am
decision to release the photographs and the video that that would create intense pressure on both the public to give information, but also on the suspects to do something. and that they would likely make some kind of mistake. at least that was the hope. and this would somehow run them to ground. so, you see literally hours after the photographs and videos are released. this is exactly what appears to have happened. >> pierre thomas reporting for us from washington. thank you very much. >> we'll take a break and be right back. and "sweet, something just for me." because walgreens balance rewards is more than a savings card. it's a rewards card that gives you 500 rewards points every time you fill a prescription. points you can redeem in store or online for, well, almost anything. rack up points with each prescription you fill, right here. at the corner of happy and healthy.

welcome back as we continue to follow welcome back as we continue to follow this developing news out of watertown, massachusetts, where there has been a fatal shooting at m.i.t. that resulted
2:09am
in the death of a campus police officer and then a chase into watertown, which resulted in the death of one of the two suspects that police now say are linked to, there they are. are linked to the boston marathon bombing. >> police are searching right now for who they say is suspect number two in these boston marathon bombings and he is the man with the white hat there and the curly hair and described as the white male and the situation is very tense. people in the area of watertown told to stay in their houses. people told not to pick anyone up off the street. this man is said to be a terrorist who came there to kill people. there were explosions all night and lots of gunfire and already these people allegedly have killed someone on the m.i.t. campus and now the search for the second suspect. let's go to linsey davis who is at the scene at the perimeter and see if there are any new details there. linsey? >> good morning, again, john. we are at thedge of that 20-block perimeter.wes
2:10am
mi shootout tk place. we have had prior to now maybe about a dozen neighborhood residents who have been standing out on the streets and they were told that around 2:50 this morning they received a call, an automated call saying to stay inside their homes. that an incident had occurred. many of them still curiosity brought them out to the corner. they appear to now be listening and taking heed to that advice. they have gone back inside their home as they advised. watertown police say they plan to go door-to-door knocking on people's door and knocking on the door unless it's a uniformed officer, someone who identified themselves as a police officer. in the meantime here, large police presence of state police and fbi in and out of this area. john? >> linsey, a public safety mode is what they were saying. they wanted to make sure everyone was safe, as you just
2:11am
mentioned. they created this 20-block perimeter. still very armed and dangerous the man they're looking for. what are some of the individuals outside, i'm sure they heard something. 30 shots, explosions were reported earlier in the evening. >> well, again, we're several blocks away. so, about a half mile. they're saying that friends of ud boo.heard those sho something that sounded like dynamite going off. they didn't hear those first hand. just accounts they had heard. not sure exactly where within this perimeter that the shootout took place. but i guess we're far enough where they weren't able to hear it. >> linsey, we saw flashing lights whiz past brian ross and we see the lights behind you there. has that been going on for a while now or is that new behind you? >> no, since we've been here. there was a large police
2:12am
presen presence. it continues to pick up and dies down. some officers in some cases left here speeding away in another direction. other officers continue to come into this area. you have a national guard presence, as well as multiple police agencies. but for the time being, it seems like things are relatively quiet, but certainly on edge. >> all right linsey, you talk about the presence you see and our correspondent brian ross said it was upwards of 1,000 law enforcement officials where he waw able to see where he was. he also mentioned there was a unit in place protecting the reporters, the cameramen, the correspondents that were out in the field because of how tense, fluid, dangerous the situation has become. is the same thing happening where you are? >> i wish that i could say that that was true. that we felt some kind of protection. we seem very exposed at this point where we are.gh t
2:13am
of here, but no where ne the numbers that brian was talking about. i would say there are several dozens officers, several dozen officers both on foot and in their vehicles and in and out of this area. but it seems like, you know, i'm kind of looking over my shoulder as i'm walking back and forth to the car or just standing on the street corner. it seems like we're very exposed. >> certainly take every precaution out there, linsey. not only searching for the suspect, as well, but searching for potential explosives. thank you for that report. >> we'll be back with the latest developments on this story.

2:16am
the other suspect, the man in the white hat that you're looking at right now according to local boston police or watertown police is the suspect that they are searching for. a manhunt at this hour, a very tense situation for a man described as a terrorist who came there to kill people. >> they are now in public safety mode is what they are calling this and what they're asking everyone to do is stay inside their homes and only answer the door if it is a police officer and they are going to be going door-to-door and block to block because they need to find this man. they need to make sure that everybody stays out of the way of police as they conduct this search. people have experienced one type or another of a police officer. just following some of the reporters at our abc station in boston, on twitter. one saying their credentials were checked twice within 20 feet and all their bags were searched before they could get

into a local hospital. there is a photographer who said he got out of his car to shoot video and the cops screamed for him to take cover inside of his news car.ittle color of what's haeninside watertown. >> let's hear from earlier a press conference from not too long ago. >> at about 10:30 last evening, a robbery took place at a 7-eleven in cambridge. subsequently after that an m.i.t. police officer was on campus and has expired as a result of his wounds. there was a car jacking that took place, as well, in cambridge involving a mercedes suv. that car was ultimately discovered here in watertown and pursued by the watertown police department. the pursuit went into a residential neighborhood not far from here where there was an exchange of gunfire between
2:18am
watertown police officer, m.i.t. police and two suspects in that suv. during that pursuit, several explosive devices were disu discharged from the car to the police officers. in the exchange of the gunfire, we believe one of the suspects was struck and ultimately taken into custody. a second suspect was able to flee from that car and there was an active search going on at this point in time. an m.i.t. police officer was struck during that exchange of gunfire and currently at the auburn hospital in critical condition. there is an active search by tactical teams from the state police and the boston police department. the watertown police department are involved in this search, as well as traffic diversion throughout the area. the most important message that we are doing right now is for the public safety and the safety of those people in that neighborhood. we are asking everyone to
2:19am
shelter in place for the time being, not to leave their homes. if they see something suspicious, other than a police officer coming to their door, they should call 911 immediately. we also want to forewarn motorists that are traveling through this particular area, even though we're locked down in this neighborhood that they should not stop for anyone and pick up anyone along the side of the roadway. what we're looking for right now is a suspect consistent with the description of suspect number two, the white capped individual who was involved in monday's bombing of the boston marathon. he was, we have a picture, a video from the 7-eleven in cambridge last night that he is dressed in a gray hoodie-type sweatshirt. light skinned or caucasian male with longer brown, curly hair. you've seen the e. you all have it.
2:20am
that's the individual that we're looking for at this moment. >> that's suspect number two? >> that's suspect number two. uspect number one was shot? >> yes. >> i just want to be clear, we will do regular updates to this safety mode right now. our immediate concern is for people in that neighborhood up there. we have an act aiive search goi on to locate and apprehend this individual. he should be considered armed and dangerous and is a threat to anybody that might approach him. so, please, use extreme caution and stayen your homes. if you see something unusual, call 911. i will ask the chief of the watertown police department to describe the neighborhood and the streets involved up there so everyone is clear on that. >> just an incredible morning. one suspect from the marathon bombings dead. another being hunted for right
2:21am

2:28am
officer. and at that point i heard an unbelievable amount of police presence coming down our street. i counted about 40, 45 police officers coming down in their cars. i got out on the balcony to see what i could see and at which point i heard a very large explosion, a boom. i didn't see it. but as i looked up in the sky, i could see it lit up the entire sky around watertown. which led meme down an see what could. i started walking this direction and i could smell a distinct smell of gun powder in the air a. . >> once again, one suspect in the boston marathon bombings dead and a gunfight with police. the second suspect on the loose. a manhunt going on at this hour for the suspect and any potential explosives that he may or may not have scattered in the area. >> look at this picture one last time. the man in black the is the suspect that is dead and the man in the white cap is the suspect that is still on the loose.
2:29am

2:30am
>> we will have, of course, all the updates on "good morning america." rez.good morning, i'm diana good morning, i'm diana perez thank you for joining us this morning. >> i'm john mueller. a wild scene coming out of the boston area, specifically watertown where a suspect is dead. the manhunt for a second suspect continues and this, according to local police is connected to the boston marathon bombings. we are getting information of that. brian ross has been on the scene throughout the morning collecting as much information as possible. brian, thank you for joining us, once again, what is the very latest? >> well, this a terrorist is at large. that's how the police here view it. identified by the fbi, suspect number two in the marathon bombing. he and his partner, suspect number one. began the evening apparently
2:31am
with a stickup at the 7-eleven store in cambridge and w to m.i.t. where they gotinto a batual thtle with m.i.t. police officer and wild chase from cambridge into neighboring watertown. more gunfire here. at that point suspect number one identified by the fbi was shot. but suspect number two fled. at this point, suspect number two is at large. they believe he is dangerous and he is armed. the residents of this town have been told to stay inside. do not answer the door for anybody, other than someone who can be identified as the police officer. the people along the route of the chase describe gunfire, bombs going off into the night and grenades being thrown. so, suspect number two remains at large. a huge police presence here with people looking for him. he is hiding under the cover of darkness. the sun comes up in about an hour, that will probably aid the
2:32am
search. at the moment, a very tense situation with a man who they believe will murder at will at large. >> clearly, brian, not only worried about catching the second suspect, but also worried about potential explosives that he may or may not have planted along the way. is that right? >> that's absolutely correct. one of our producers was told that be careful, there are explosives everywhere. we were told at one point not to use cell phones for fear they might trigger an explosion. so, these are people who they suspect have ski and building bombings and had lots of other one of the quensi think is raised is that based on the identification a of these two men, suspects one and two from the marathon bombings. many of us were surprised they were in this area. they have not taken off at all. the additional information we have is that they had a car loaded with explosives which suggests, perhaps, they have not
2:33am
finished whatever their task was. >> brian, two individuals who wanted to cause a lot of harm. just going back to what police were telling us what they did on this spree alone. a robbery, a carjacking, they shot and killed an m.i.t. police officer. there is another transit police officer who was struck and is now in critical condition at the hospital. and the concern is for the residents, also. they want to make sure that everybody stays inside and that everybody is vigilant because, until the sun comes up, there is no telling where this man is. right now, is there any developments on, as far as how police are going to keep the area safe? is it still just the door-to-door? have you heard any updates on that? calls are being made a .ne they call reverse 911 calls and they have an area where they
2:34am
think he may be and they tried to square that off. but with darkness, that is an ally for someone trying to hide, for a fugitive. that is the concern. it's probably about a mile down the road from where i'm standing right now where this is taking place. but a very tense situation there. they have no doubt that this person is prepared to kill, again. >> we saw the cars behind you, brian, speeding behind you. so, certainly fluid. take care out there and we'll check in in a little bit. abc's brian ross, thank you. and we now want to move to abc's pierre thomas who is in washington. pierre, you've been in contact with your fbi sources throughout the evening and the morning. what can you tell us? >> well, the fbi says now they're trying to assist the state and boston pd in searching for suspect number two. the suspect who had the white cap on that we've been seeing in the videos and photographs. they said that is the highest priority. they believe this person is a
2:35am
terrorist who is willing to kill, as brian just noted, at will. he is likely capable of taking hostages and likely try to shoot his way out or bomb his way out of any situation. law enforcement officials also say priority number two is to try to get control of whatever explosive devices that have been left behind. law enforcement officials are g more urgent, dangerous situation than you hunldhat area rowig. >> one suspect was actually take nn to cu en into custody and the first suspect is deceased. this is no time to let down because this is a very dangerous situation, pierre. >> diana? >> pierre, i have one more question for you, if you have a moment there. where do we go for now? you mengtioned earlier the release of the two pictures from the fbi have created a beehive situation. what exactly does that mean for this case?
2:36am
>> what the fbi believes is that when they made the decision to release the photographs and the video that that would create intense pressure on both the public to give information, but also on the suspects to do something. and that they would likely make some kind of mistake, at least that was the hope. and this would somehow run them to ground. you see literally hours after the photographs and video are released, this is exactly what appears to have haphappened. >> pierre thomas from washington. thank you very much. >> we'll take a break and be right back. and "sweet, something just for me." because walgreens balance rewards is more than a savings card. it's a rewards card that gives you 500 rewards points every time you fill a prescription. points you can redeem in store or online for, well, almost anything. rack up points with each prescripon you fill, right here.

campus police officer. and then a chase into watertown, which resulted in the death of one of the two suspects that police now say are linked to, there they are, are linked to the boston marathon bombings. >> police are searching right now for who they say is suspect number two in these boston marathon bombings and he is the man with the white hat there and the curly hair. he is described as a white male and the situation is very tense. people in the area of watertown told to stay in their houses. people told not to pick up anyone on the street. this man is said to be a terrorist who came there to kill people. there were explosions all night, lots of gunfire, already these le allegedly have killed someon the m.i.t. campus and, now, the search for the let's go to linsey davis, who is in watertown, at the scene, at the perimeter and see if there are any new details there. linsey? >> good morning, again, john. we are on the edge of the 20-block perimeter.
2:40am
we are less than half a mile away from where the shootout took place. we have had prior to now maybe about a dozen neighborhood residents who have been standing out on the streets and they were told that around 2:50 this morning they received a call, an automated call saying to stay inside their homes. that an incident had occurred. many of them still curiosity brought them out to the corner. they now appear to be listening and they appear to go back inside their home, as they have been advised. watertown police plan to go door-to-door knocking on people's doors and for people not to open up the door unless it is a uniformed officer, someone who identifies themself as a police officer. in the meantime here, continues to be a large police presence of state police, fbi in and out of this area. john? >> linsey, this was a public safety mode that the police were saying. they wanted to make sure that everybody was safe, as you jusm.
2:41am
they created this 20lock perimeter. still armed and dangerous the man they're looking for. what are some of the accounts that you're hearing from the individuals outside. i'm sure they heard something. explosions were reported earlier in the evening. >> we're several blocks away. their friends heard large booms, something like dynamite going off but they didn't hear those first hand. they were just accounts that they had heard. we're not sure exactly within this perimeter that the shootout took place but we're far enough away where they weren't able to hear it. >> linsey, we saw flashing lights whiz past brian ross and we see the lights behind you there, has that been going on for a while now or is that new behind you? >> since we've been here, a large police presence and the
2:42am
activity from time to time in spurts continues to pick up and dies down. some officers in some cases have left here speeding away in another direction. other officers continue to come into this area. you have national guard presence, as well as multiple police agencies. but for the time being, it seems like things are relatively quiet, but certainly on edge. >> all right, linsey, you talk about the presence that you see and our condent brian ross said that it was upwards of 1,000 law enforcement officials that he was able to see where he was. he also mentioned that there was a unit in place protecting the reporters, the cameramen, the correspondents that were out in the field because of how tense, fluid, dangerous the situation has become. is the same thing happening where you are? >> i wish i could say that that is true. that we felt some kind of protection. we seem very exposed, at this point, where we are. as i said, there are officers
2:43am
here, but no where near the numbers that brian was talking about. i would say there are several dozen officers and several dozen officers both on foot and in their vehicles and in and out of this area, but it seems like, i'm kind of looking over my shoulder as i'm walking back and forth to the car or just standing on the street corner. it seems like we're very exposed. >> certainly take every precaution out there, linsey. be very careful. not only searching for the suspect, but searching for potential explosives. be very careful, linsey, thank you for that report. >> we'll be back with the latest developments on this story.

2:47am
there is a photographer who said that he got out of his car to shoot video and the cop screamed for him to take cover inside his news car. just a little color of what's happening in watertown. >> so much happening. let's hear from earlier, a press conference not too long ago. >> at about 10:30 last evening, a robbery took place at a 7-eleven in cambridge. subsequently after that, an m.i.t. police officer was shot on campus and expired as a result of his wounds. there was a carjacking that took place, as well, in cambridge, involving a mercedes suv. that car was ultimately discovered here in watertown and pursued by the watertown police department. the pursuit went into a residential neighborhood not far from here, where there was an exchange of gunfire from watertown police and two
2:48am
suspects in this suv. during the course of that pursuit, severlovedes were disce cahe police officers in the exchange of the gunfire, we believe that one of the suspects wastruck and ultimately taken into custody. a second suspect was able to flee from that car and there is an active search going on at this point in time. an police officer was struck during that gunfire and is currently at the auburn hospital in critical condition. critical teams from nemlec and the state police and the watertown police department are involved in this search, as well as traffic diversion throughout the area. the most important message that we are doing right now is for the public safety and the safety of those people in that neighborhood. we are asking everyone to
2:49am
shelter in place for the time being, not to leave their homes. if they see something suspicious, other than a police officer coming to their door, they should call 911 immediately. we also want to forewarn motorists that are traveling through this particular area, even though we're locked down in this neighborhood that they should not stop for anyone and pick up anyone along the side of the roadway. what we're looking for right now is a suspect consistent with the description of suspect number tw the whi capped individual who inday bombing of the boston marathon. he was, we have a picture, a video from the 7-eleven in cambridge last night that he is dressed in a gray, hoodie-type sweatshirt. light skin or caucasian male with longer brown, curly hair. you've seen the picture.
2:50am
you all have it. that's the individual that we're looking for at this moment. >> that's suspect number two? >> that's suspect number two. the white capped individual. >> suspect number one was shot then? >> that's correct. >> i just want to be clear. we will do regular updates to this. but right now we're in a pub li safety mode. our concern is for people in that neighborhood right there. an active search by tactical teams to locate and apprehend this individual. he should be considered arm aed and dangerous and is a threat to anybody that might approach him. please, use extreme caution and stay in your homes. if you hear something, if you see something unusual, we'd like you to call 911. i'll ask chief devoe of the watertown police department to a, the orod and the streets involved up there so everyone is clear on that. >> just an incredible morning. one suspect from the marathon bombings dead.

3:10am
we are about less than half a mile away from where that shootout took place. we have had prior to now maybe about a dozen neighborhood residents who have been standing out on the streets and they were told that around 2:50 this morning they received a call, an automated call saying to stay inside their homes. that an incident had occurred. many of them still curiosity brought them out to the corner. they appear to now be listening and taking heed to that advice. they have gone back inside their home as they advised. watertown police say they plan to go door-to-door knocking on people's door and knocking on the door unless it's a uniformed officer, someone who identified themselves as a police officer. in the meantime here, large police presence of state police and fbi in and out of this area. john? >> linsey, a public safety mode

3:12am

point where we are. though, as i said, there are officers here, but no where near the numbers that brian was talking about. i would say there are several dozens officers, several dozen officers both on foot and in their vehicles and in and out of this area. but it seems like, you know, i'm kind of looking over my shoulder as i'm walking back and forth to the car or just standing on the street corner. it seems like we're very exposed. >> certainly take every precaution out there, linsey. be very careful. not only searching for the suspect, as well, but searching for potential explosives. thank you for that report. >> we'll be back with the latest developments on this story.

3:29am
time. the man in black the is the suspect that is dead and the man in the white cap is the suspect that is still on the loose. we just heard from a doctor at beth israel hospital that said suspect number one, the one with the black cap, was brought in under armed police guard with a blast injury. that is something that we have heard throughout the morning that they were not only exchanging gunfire with police, but they were throwing explosives out of their stolen suv. >> extremely dangerous situation. again, not only the hunt for the second suspect, but also the hunt for any explosives we have been hearing about. gunfight early in the night and campus police officer from m.i.t. killed early in the night and an incredible situation. and the boston marathon bombing suspects one dead and one hopefully caught very soon. >> that's right. police know who they are looking for.r myery and ank

you so much for staying with us as we have broug yhese developments throughout th morning. we will have, of course the update "good morning americ" good morning, i'm diana perez thank you for joining us this morning. >> i'm john muller. we continue our breaking news this morning. a wild scene coming out of the boston area, specifically watertown where a suspect is dead and the search for a second suspect continues. this, according to local police, is connected to the boston marathon bombings. we are getting information of that. brian ross has been on the scene throughout the morning collecting as much information as possible. brian, thank you for joining us, once again, what is the very latest? >> well, a terrorist is at large. that's how the police here view it. identified by the fbi, suspect
3:31am
number two in the marathon bombing. he and his partner, suspect number one. began the evening apparently with a stickup at the 7-eleven store in cambridge and went on to m.i.t. where they got into a battle with m.i.t. police officer and wild chase from mbr watertown. more gun here. at that ecnut er one identified by the fbi wash. but suspect numbwo fled. at this point, suspect number two is at large. they believe he is dangerous and he is armed. the residents of this town have been told to stay inside. do not answer the door for anybody, other than someone who can be identified as the police officer. the people along the route of the chase describe gunfire, bombs going off into the night and grenades being thrown.
3:32am
so, suspect number two remains at large. a huge police presence here with people looking for him. he is hiding under the cover of darkness. the sun comes up in about an hour, that will probably aid the search. at the moment, a very tense situation with a man who they believe will murder at will at large. >> clearly, brian, not only worried about catching the second suspect, but also worried about potential explosives that he may or may not have planted along the way. is that correct? >> that's absolutely correct. one of our producers was told that be careful, there are explosives everywhere. we were told at one point not to use cell phones for fear they might trigger an explosion. so, these are people who they suspect have skills and building bombings and had lots of other bombs, apparently. one of the questions that i think is raised is that based on the identificationn,s
3:33am
om then mb we in rprised they have not taken off at all the additional information we have is that they had a car loaded with explosives which suggests, perhaps, they have not finished whatever their task was. >> brian, two individuals who wanted to cause a lot of harm. just going back to what police were telling us what they did on this spree alone. a robbery, a carjacking, they shot and killed an m.i.t. police officer. there is another transit police officer who was struck and is now in critical condition at the hospital. and the concern is for the residents, also. they want to make sure that everybody stays inside and that everybody is vigilant because, until the sun comes up, there is no telling where this man is. right now, is there any developments on, as far as how police are going to keep the area safe? is it still just the door-to-door? have you heard any updates on that? >> it is door-to-door, phone calls are being made at random.
3:34am
they call reverse 911 calls and they have an area where they think he may be and they tried to square that off. but with darkness, that is an ally for someone trying to hide, for a fugitive. that is the concern.it pblabout the road from where i'stng right now where this is taking l but a very tense situation there. they have no doubt that this person is prepared to kill, >>e saw the cars bind you, brian, speeding behind you. so, certainly fluid. take care out there and we'll check in in a little bit. abc's brian ross, thank you. and we now want to move to abc's pierre thomas who is in washington. pierre, you've been in contact with your fbi sources throughout the evening and the morning. what can you tell us?
3:35am
>> well, the fbi says now they're trying to assist the state and boston pd in searching for suspect number two. the suspect who had the white cap on that we've been seeing in the videos and photographs. they said that is the highest priority. they believe this person is a terrorist who is willing to kill, as brian just noted, at will. he is likely capable of taking hostages and likely try to shoot his way out or bomb his way out of any situation. law enforcement officials also say priority number two is to try to get control of whatever explosive devices that have been left behind. law enforcement officials are telling me this could not be a more urgent, dangerous situation than you have unfolding in that area right now. >> one suspect was actually take into custody and the first suspect is deceased. this is no time to let down because this is a very dangerous situation, pierre. >> diana? >> pierre, i have one more question for you, if have
3:36am
do we go for now? you mentioned earlier the release ofwo pictures the fbi have created a beehive situation. what ectoes that mean for this case? >> what the fbi believes is that when they made the decision to release the photographs and the video that that would create intense pressure on both the public to give information, but also on the suspects to do something. and that they would likely make some kind of mistake, at least that was the hope. and this would somehow run them to ground. you see literally hours after the photographs and video are released, this is exactly what appears to have happened. >> pierre thomas from washington. thank you very much. >> we'll take a break and be thank you very much. >> we'll take a break and be right back. 500 rewards points every time you fill a prescription. points you can redeem in store or online for, well, almost anything. rack up points with each prescription you fill, right here. at the corner of happy and healthy.
